Brief Answer:
You can resume urethral catheterization

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day


I assume you will be undergoing removal of Prostate by Transurethral Resection of Prostate (TURP).
You can safely continue using catheter for sex play. There is slight increased risk of Urethral stricture following Prostate removal.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

I have had a lot of urinary tract infections in my life. I can always tell when one is coming on. Today, I felt like I was going to have diareah and headed to the bathroom, I did have a bowel movement but also painful urination, not much came out. I've had to urinate about 30 minutes since then. I've never had a UTI come on this fast. Don't know if I should give it a day or two or head to the dr right away for antibiotics. I did have a hernia repair one week ago.

Hi, I am male, Last 5 days, I have been to the doctor and I told him that I can't pee because of too much pain, my penis can't help to close. That's the only symptoms on that day. Now I have a catheter connecting my bladder to the urine bag. My penis discharges a mucus like pus with blood and even if I can't feel my urethra in my penis burning, my penis urethra became more sensitive to pain when moved. I've been taking Levofloxacin as the doctor told me, but the symptoms are more mild last 5 days. My urinologist will be only be available for next week. What should I do? Is the catheter in my urethra only complicates my condition? If the catheter will be removed, will it be more painful than before in urinating?
